If you use him in the open field use Infantry to get his march speed buff that is really good along all other traits from the Infantry Talent build below. For your city defense troop types are mixed anyway.
Best Commander Pairing for Pericles
Sun Tzu is the slam-dunk pairing with him also for defending your city in very early stages (please keep in mind that youwill switch to legendary defender for your city early anyway) but also Sun Tzu with him in the open field with a infantry march is a viable epic pairing in early stages. Bjorn Ironside can also be a pairing for open field with the infantry synergy and a full infantry march if you have him maxed out or high on your priority list. Overall, also when looking at the fact that they are epic commanders, not the big banger you will run very long in the game. Charles Martel also has shielding and if you combine them together, even when your Charles Martel is at a low upgrade stage, you will shield back-to-back and make it hard for anybody to actually take them down, also with the march speed bonus. Richard with the shielding and healing can be a durable setup that is hard to get down and you don’t have to have your Richard leveld up too much – for early kingdoms a good infantry march. Phyrrus is released along him and their synergy between shielding and buffing is good. On paper a great synergy but in reality if you are at a stage where you really consider running him as epic you don’t have an expertised Phyrrrus available and, the other way round, if you have a fairly upgraded pHyrrus you are having better pairings to go with.

Best Equipment Forge Order
In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Pericles. I have tailored this priority order that you can follow step-by-step to prevent forging and running equipment that is not useful or only provides a very small improvement. Follow the equipment path step-by-step and you will have the best and most economical gear:
